This is the latest YOE crafts for the past 2 months. Last months craft challenge was songbirds.
These are the birds I made to send. It's the spool pattern, but I added silk flower petals for their tail feathers. Remember, these are Christmas ornaments we are making year round.
And, these are the birds I received in return. Cute little birds perched on their swing. They are also made from the spool pattern, and she put glass beads on the end of their tails.
This month is mermaids. .The mermaid I sent was made with sparkly pompoms threaded on a wire and a paper cutout of a mermaid (front and back) that is laminated with the wire placed between the two cutouts.
and I made an extra ornie for her - a pink flying pig (which she collects). This little piggy has a few rose buds, a little embroidery, some shiny glass beads, and soft fluffy wings.You can't see his tail, but there is a cute curly tail there.
